With jobs being created in Tucson, one would expect the demand to continue to increase. Without more homes being listed for sale, that could mean buyers will increase their purchase offer prices in 2017.

When submitting an offer
Given current inventory levels, low ball offers aren’t getting a lot of traction. So, if you “really” want the home, make a “reasonable” offer.
You have to ask yourself, “will I feel bad if I don’t get this house?” If the answer is no, then put in an offer you would feel is a steal and see what happens. If the answer is yes, put in an offer you and your Realtor think is reasonable.
We will work with you to understand your objectives and analyze the market to determine – as best we can – a price range for the home you want to buy or sell.
